Updates - The Broket Archive

What’s new at TBA?

The Broket Archive (TBA) is continually changing. Major changes have occurred each year since its launch in 2004. Examples are the discovery of the Will in England of John Brockett who married Mary Blackwell and the Y-DNA project. These are now part and parcel of the major 2018 revision of the site. We only record substantial new developments and discoveries here. But we are working hard in the background and smaller updates are continually being added. Some may be especially pertinent to you. You can always see if changes have occurred in the pages you view by checking the page update stamp at the bottom right of each page. Do contact and ask. Suggestions are appreciated too.
